DREAMS DO COME TRUE

Joe Meek Produces from Beyond The Grave?

Once upon a time Joe Meek fan club member, Tony Grinham (aka Tony Kaye) was on the verge of grabbing his 15 minutes of fame with Joe Meek back in the 60's. He was signed up to Joe not only as an artist but also as a songwriter. First it looked like his songs would hit centre stage with a song called Leggy Peggy pencilled in for Heinz to record. Apparently a recording session was done for it but Joe and Heinz fell out and the song was either scrubbed or went into the now infamous Tea Chest tapes.

Next came Tony's opportunity to sing on one of his own songs, The Long Drop. A demo was made with Tony singing. Then later a new back tracking was recorded and produced by Joe and the next step was for Tony to record the track properly for release. Unfortunately Joe then killed himself and Tony never got to sing on it, but he did manage to acquire the backing track which has been collecting dust until now.

Like many others who have heard a significant amount of Russell C. Brennan's productions and releases, Tony considers Russell to be the new Joe Meek. Russell himself is a huge Joe Meek fan. He has produced the original Honeycombs line-up with Denis D'ell & Honey Langtree in. He also produced two tracks for ex-Joe Meek star Glenda Collins, the latest one being considered extra special - a Ray Davies song Nobody's Fool (theme from Budgie). This was released recently on the Cult Themes Forever CD album - which has some very Joe Meek sounding tracks on it as well as some that have Russell's own unique production style.

Russell met Tony some years ago when he was more involved with both of the Joe Meek fan clubs, but it was only recently that Tony played him Joe's backing track for The Long Drop. It seemed to be an opportunity to make everyone's dreams come true, i.e. for Tony to finally get his song released and for Russell to co-produce a track with his idol Joe. It just needed one more piece of the jigsaw. Since Russell had become close to Glenda Collins and she likes working with him, he asked her about doing the track. The original lyrics were a bit morbid (about a man going to the gallows) so Russell wrote some new lyrics capturing the essence of the story of Tony's song but with a different spin on it, coming from the female point of view (writing for female singers is one of his specialities). So Tony's song The Long Drop has finally, after all these years of being in the vault, been recorded by Glenda Collins, co-produced by Joe Meek and Russell C. Brennan, and will be released soon. The circle is complete.

The song comes out as a download single on iTunes and all good download stores on Feb 3rd, a significant date for all Joe Meek fans.

Since Glenda is a big fan of Russell's songwriting as well as his productions she asked if she could do a cover of her favourite Russell song Numbers as a B-side of Tony's track on Future Legend Records. So fans will get two Glenda Collins tracks for the price of one!

It's not viable to put this release out on vinyl unfortunately but there is a ltd edition specially made up 6 track CD-EP of the track features different versions of the track including Joes Instrumental & Tonys original demo & another new song sung by Glenda written by Russell. Only 54 copies £5 inc p&p. (paypal button under photo of sleeve at top of the page).

CULT THEMES FOREVER

CultThemesForever sleeve White border

As you know, Future Legend Records is world famous & synonymous with doing great new versions of Cult TV & film themes. They started the trend back in the 90s and released six popular 'decade' specific albums (‘60s, ‘70s & ‘80s) attracting many high profile fans along the way, including David Bowie (who loved the cover of his track on the ‘80s album), Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys and composer John Barry - who even said some of the Bond theme covers were better than his.

It was thought no more cult themes albums would be released but we have decided to put out one final album to meet customer demand. The track listing of this new album includes many unusual gems, some of which are very hard to get hold of even by the original artists.

The album is an eclectic but imaginative reinterpretation of many themes, including a Flamenco style version of Pulp Fiction’s Misirlou and Joe Meek style productions of two Gerry Anderson themes - Fireball XL5 and Aqua Marina (from Stingray). The tracks range from catchy songs to experimental soundscapes and an interesting musical adventure awaits the listener. Click underlined link to find out more on the Cult Themes Forever page!
